Groundhog Day 2016

Oh, I’ve heard of Groundhog day, but what about Skyhog day??  I once asked my friend who works at the zoo: “when will we see Skyhog day?” and he said “when pigs fly.”  We laughed and laughed.  He’s rather witty. We would’ve went on, but there were people in line behind me, so I paid for my souvenirs and left.  I haven’t seen “Dennis” since our last time in Toledo (Zoo).

You know what?  This isn’t going very well.  I meant to write up a quick and relevant post about Groundhog Day, but it’s just not landing. Action must be taken.  I need a guest blogger to fill the gap.  Someone who knows Groundhog day.  Behold: a Groundhog.

And he writes:

Thank you, guest Groundhog.  The language got a bit salty in the middle, but we can do our best to ignore.  You’ve made the GHD institution proud — from the top-hatted mayor of Punxsutawney to Bill Murray (GhostbustersRushmore) to all mammals everywhere who regularly see their shadows but get absolutely no press, myself included.  And that’s ok.

Now that I think about it, I should’ve asked Bill Murray to guest blog.  He does weird independent stuff all the time.  He even has an 800 number that you can call to pitch ideas. Listen: I was kidding about the Groundhog thing.  There was no guest blogger.  It was me the whole time… and I would’ve gotten away with it, too, had I left my conscience in Kalamazoo.  But this is true: Murray really has an 800 number in lieu of an agent.  You can read about it here.  Sometime I’d like to call him and see if he’d join us in a video shoot.  You know, because the internet.

I plan to recycle this post every Groundhog Day until 2050.
